POCILLOVY

Did you know that a Pocillovist is someone who collects egg cups as a hobby?  Pocillovy comes from the Latin pocillovum ovi, meaning a small cup for an egg.


Wishing all my bloggy friends a very blessed Easter with family and friends.

I didn't know until yesterday. We have a TV program here called "Collectors" and there was a couple who had quite a collection of silver and brass egg cups - they're also used as christening cups. You DO learn something every day!

Yes, we visited a few years back; it was amazing. Send me an email (address on my profile) and I'll send you the slideshow by return. You need to press 'download' rather than 'view slideshow' - then you'll get the music with it. It's lovely. LBx
